The restaurants and bars at the Nobis, as well as at the group's other properties, is headed up by Stefano Catenacci, whose family have been in the restaurant business for years. Although of Roman and Neapolitan extraction, his outfits serve food from all Italian regions and it is kept rustic yet refined. Stefano is extremely fussy when it comes to ingredients and cuts no corners - if he cannot find precisely what he wants to be on the menu well then it will not be there! No substitutes accepted!
The Bistro is the hotels café style eatery, situated just off the lobby and with a separate street entrance and summer terrace. Modelled on a typical Italian café where punters would come for a caffè at the bar in the morning and for a quick snack at lunchtime, it serves an organic continental breakfast buffet each morning together with a few hot options. From the late morning onwards it turns into what it does best, serving stuzzichini, or appetisers, panini and a few more hearty dishes such as seared salmon, fried chicken breast and tenderised cold cut fillet of beef. There is also a selection of cheeses and typical desserts, including tiramisú.
Nobis is lucky enough to have a world-class cocktail bar in The Gold Bar. With its gold-tinted wall and ceiling mirrors, golden tables and otherwise quite bling, yet very much classy, décor it is a glamourous setting in which to enjoy some of the best cocktails in the country. Headed up by the experienced Robert Radovic, the bar has received many accolades, as have it staff.
Guests can also order food and drink in the lounge area described above in 'Hotel Overview' throughout the day.
But it is Caina, the hotel's Italian restaurant which is arguably the main pull in terms of food.
